Some of the matters or points covered:
- Continuation of reply to a question that arises: can a person not use the argument of Al-Qadr and say: ‘If there is predestination then can I not use that as an argument to oppose the legislation (commands and prohibitions) of Allāh?’. Third argument from the angle of reason/intellect mentioned.
- This argument goes along the lines of: if person using Al-Qadr as an argument (for doing evil deeds) was given a choice in travelling to two different cities, one is safe and secure with good food and drink, and the second city is one of fear, disturbance, various types of evil and wretchedness, he would obviously travel to the first city and would not ever say: ‘It’s in Allāh’s decree for me to travel to the second city, I have no choice so let me go to this wretched, dangerous, evil city’. So if this is the case for a destination in this life then why not make the same choice in relation to a destination in the Hereafter (Paradise or Hell)?.
- Response to two doubts or misconceptions raised:
1) Regarding verses [6:106-107] in the Qur’ān, someone might say: ‘polytheism occurred by Allāh’s will so is this not justification of Shirk by Allāh’s decree?’.
2) Regarding famous hadīth of Adam (عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ) and his disputation with Mūsa (عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ), someone might say: ‘Is Adam not using Al-Qadr as an argument?’. This is answered from two angles.
